From Hartsop straight to Gray Crag and back. Path hard to find and a bit slippy in places. Took around 2 hours 30.Cicatrice20/09/2016
Conquered the Kentmere horseshoe Yoke, Ill Bell, Frostwick and Thornthwaite crag were fantastic. Grey crag was a bit dower. Then the clouds dropped and the the views disappeared. Walk to Mardale I'll Bell was interesting Then we back traced down the Nan Beld Pass and back down to Kentmere 15 miles and our longest walk to date.Tobo196920/08/2016
